THE HEADLINE READS: “BRAIN’S CHEMISTRY FOUND TO EFFECT THINKING.” -HOW MANY PEOPLE, WHILE READING THAT WERE CAPABLE OF CHANGING THE WORDS, “FOUND TO EFFECT” TO, “FOUND TO BE THE SAME AS”?
A MAN NOTES: “WHEN I WAS OVER WEIGHT I WOULD FEEL GUILTY WHENEVER I ATE SWEETS:
I NOW FEEL SOMETHING SIMILAR WHENEVER I PICK UP MYSTICAL WRITINGS.”
METAPHORS ARE TO ENTERTAIN A SICK MYSTIC UNTIL THE MEDICINE ARRIVES.
YOU CAN HOLD METAPHORS EN YOUR MOUTH LONGER THAN YOU CAN FACTS, (WHICH IS ONE REASON THEY ARE PREFERRED BY SOME,)
IT IS EASIER TO KEEP IN MIND THE METAPHORICAL STATEMENT THAT: “MAN IS ASLEEP” THAN IT IS THE FACT THAT IT IS THE ATOMIC ACTIVITY
IN YOUR CORTICAL CELLS THAT IS WHOLEY RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH STATEMENTS.
A MAN WHO KNOWS-THE-FACTS AND WILL STILL READ MYSTICAL WRITINGS
IS LIKE A MAN, ONCE BLIND WHO GAINED HIS SIGHT BUT STILL IS DRAWN TO SITTING IN THE DARK WITH HIS EYES CLOSED.
ALL OF THIS SHOWS UP THE FACT THAT MEN ARE NATURALLY ATTRACTED TO THEIR ORDINARY STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS AND WILL REVERT THERETO
AT THE FIRST OPPORTUNITY.
GIVEN THE CHANCE, LIVERS WILL ALWAYS GO HOME TO MAMA, (AS WILL ALL OTHER ORGANS).
CARS ABLE-TO, AND IN-THE-HABIT-OF
RUNNING ON-87 OCTANE
PREFER IT TO ANYTHING HIGHER EVEN IF AVAILABLE.
…GO FIGURE!, (COURSE I SAY, “GO FIGURE” KNOWING THE FUTILITY OF
MY WORDS IN THAT IT WILL :BE YOUR “87 OCTANE-LOVING-MACHINE” THAT WILL
DO THE FIGURIN’ WHICH TAKES CARE OF ANY DOUBT AS TO WHAT WILL BE
THE OUTCOME OF SAID FIGURIN’.
WHAT A HEADLINE: “BRAIN’S CHEMISTRY FOUND TO EFFECT THINKING.”,
WHY THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW WE’LL BE A’HEARIN’ THAT CLOUDS EFFECT RAINFALL.
…BUT DON’T JUST LAUGH AT THE SITUATION, FOR AFTER ALL:
WHAT HEADLINES CAN WRITE THEMSELVES AND THUS AVOID ALL ERRORS?!, – NONE,
OBVIOUSLY…BUT NOT SO OBVIOUS IS THIS:
WHAT THOUGHTS CAN WRITE & PRODUCE THEMSLVES? — NONE, BUT NOT KNOWING
THE FACTS, THEY BELIEVE THAT THEY CAN: NOT REALIZING THE FACT THAT:
“THE BRAIN’S CHEMISTRY FOUND TO BE THE SAME AS THINKING”
99106-2
THE CONSCIOUSNESS PRODUCED BY THE BRAIN’S NORMAL CELLULAR ACTIVITY PREFERS THE FANCY WRAPPING OF A GIFT BOX TO WHATEVER MAY BE IN THE BOX:
THIS IS A FACT: SEE IT — ACCEPT IT -I AND GO FROM THERE,
WHILE KEEPING AT ARM’S LENGTH THE FANCY WRAPPING’S ATTEMPTS TO ASSIST YOU IN YOUR”GOING ON” — WHICH IS DONE BY REPLYING ON
NOTHING BUT THE FACTS….THEY’RE RIGHT THERE IN THE BOX…JUST REMOVE
AND DISCARD THE FANCY WRAPPING. IT’S ALL ALLEGORICAL ANY WAY,
THE UNRECORDED SEQUENCE OF CERTAIN THINGS AND WHY YOU NEVER HEAR ABOUT IT:
GOING FROM BEING A MYSTIC WITH NIGHTMARES OF BEING ASLEEP, TO BEING
A MYSTIC WITH DAY DREAMS OF BEING AWAKE, TO BEING
A MYSTIC WHO DISCOVERS THE FACTS, WHO THEN DROPS OFF OF THE
RECORDED SEQUENCE CHART, NEVER TO BE HEARD OF AGAIN,
NOT ONLY DO THOSE TRULY AWAKE NOT KNOW THAT THEY ARE AWAKE — NEITHER DOES ANYONE ELSE.
(ADD THAT TO YOUR FRONTAL LOBE, CHEMICAL MIX.)
METAPHORS CAN HEAT YOU UP & GET YOU ALL AGITATED: THE FACTS WILL COOL YOU DOWN.
…OKAY, TIME TO ASK AGAIN: WHO WANTS THE FANCY WRAPPING PAPER,
AND WHO WANTS WHAT’S IN THE BOX?…AND SOMEONE OBJECTS:
“BUT I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S IN THE BOX.”, OH, THAT’S SIMPLE: NOTHING! —
…WELL…NOT REALLY “NOTHING”:
WHAT’S IN THE BOX IS THE SAME THING THAT’S IN YOUR COMMENT:
“BUT I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S IN THE BOX.”
…SO, IT’S NOT REALLY EMPTY, IT’S JUST THAT, WELL,
IF YOU’RE GONNA KEEP FRETTIN’ OVER IT
MAYBE IT IS BEST THAT YOU JUST STICK WITH THE FANCY WRAPPING.
NOTICE: DO NOT BE TAKEN IN & SETTLE FOR INFORMATION THAT IS TOUTED WITH
THE SLOGAN: “YOU’VE GOT TO HEAR IT TO BELIEVE IT.”,
GO INSTEAD TO WHERE THE PREVAILING REALITY IS THUS:
“WHAT YOU WILL HEAR YOU CANNOT BELIEVE.”,
(WHICH, I MIGHT POINT OUT, ELIMINATES YOUR LISTENING TO YOUR OWN BRAIN’S
CELLULAR CHATTER.)
99106-3
SOME SAY THEY HEAR GOD TALKING TO THEM:
A MAN WHO KNOWS THE FACTS COULD SAY THAT HE HEARS GLUCOSE
IN HIS CEREBRAL CELLS MAKING NOISES THAT SOUND QUITE SIMILAR TO
HUMAN SPEECH IN FACT — DAMN SIMILAR!
SO
DON’T FORGET THE HEADLINES:
“BRAIN’S CHEMISTRY FOUND TO EFFECT AMD IN FACT BE THE SAME AS, THINKING.”
..”AHHH, SUCH SWEET RELIEF TO DISCOVER THAT MY MIND IS JUST SOME GLUCOSE
AND OTHER ASSORTED COMPOUNDS, BROUGHT TO LIFE AND SUPPORTED BY THE
JUMPING AROUND OF ELECTRONS.
AHH, THE INNOCENT METAPHORS OF MY YOUTH,
WHEN I USED SUCH TERMS AS: ‘MY THINKING….MY MIND’, AND SO ON:
CAN JUST IMAGINE THE ULTIMATE HEADLINES REGARDING ME:
“MAN DISCOVERS THE FACTS: FINALLY GROWS UP.”
WHEN I WAS A CHILD, I SLEPT AS A CHILD,
BUT ONCE I GOT PAST THE FANCY WRAPPING AND OPENED THE BOX, THE SLEEP FELL FROM MY EYES.
NOW, (LIKE A REFORMED DRUNK),
ALL I’VE GOT TO DO IS STAY ON GUARD AGAINST MY ATTRACTION TO FANCY WRAPPINGS, AND JUST — STICK TO THE FACTS.”

99106-4
THOSE WHO KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON ARE LIKE AN IMPROVED VERSION OF LOT’S WIFE: HERS WAS A CASE OF: “DON’T LOOK BACK.”
BUT WITH THE AWAKENED IT’S A MATTER OF: “YOU CAN’T BEAR TO LOOK BACK!”
WHY KEEP LOOKING BACK?…THERE IS NOTHING THERE BUT OLD
CHEMICALLY STORED MEMORIES, WHICH ARE INDEED THE NECESSARY BASIS FOR
ALL THINKING, BUT,
ANY THINKING ABOUT THINGS ALREADY KNOWN IS, FOR PEOPLE LIKE US,
A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME,
XXX
CELLS CARRY A SECRET THAT THEY CAN’T TELL BUT
IN A FEW PEOPLE — THEY TRY, GUESS WHO THESE PEOPLE ARE ?!?!
XXX
THE DEBATES NECESSARY FOR PROGRESS ARE TO THOUGHT WHAT TRIAL AND ERROR IS TO THE BODY,
XXX
EVEN THE MOST ORDINARY OF MEN ARE UNCERTAIN, AND
WHAT IF THE ULTIMATE, PERHAPS, ONLY, WISDOM POSSIBLE IS IN ACHIEVING A STATE OF TOTAL UNCERTAIN?!
IN THE END, WHOEVER KNOWS THE LEAST IS THE MOST AWAKE,
XXX
SOMEONE RAISES A QUESTION: “YOU ONCE SAID THAT IF SOMEONE WITH SUFFICIENT EXPERIENCE IN STRUGGLING TO AWAKEN COULD COMPLETELY CEASE THINKING ABOUT IT, THAT THEY WOULD NOT BE ASLEEP,BUT HOW WOULD THEY DIFFER FROM SOME ONE WHO HAS NEVER EVEN HEARD OF THE IDEA OF BEING ASLEEP OR AWAKE, AND HAS THUS NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT IT EITHER? HOW COULD YOU TELL TWO SUCH PEOPLE
APART?! WHAT POSSIBLE WAY WOULD THEY BE ANY DIFFERENT?!” AH SIR,
BUT THEY WOULD — AND ONLY THOSE-WHO-KNOW CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT I MEAN,
XXX
99106-5
MEN PROGRESS BY HAVING CERTAIN CELLS ALMOST OUT OF CONTROL, THAT IS: THE CORTICAL NEURONS ARE ABLE TO HESITATE.– EVEN DISSENT FROM
FORMALLY, NORMAL INSTINCTIVE ACTIONS BASED ON THEM OWN EXPERIENCES AND MEMORIES THEREOF.
ALL BRAIN CELLS SAVE THESE, ARE RIGIDLY PROGRAMMED AND NO VARIATIONS ARE ALLOWED WITHOUT PUNITIVE CONSEQUENCES:
BUT WITH THE CORTICAL CELLS, VARIATIONS ARE NOT ONLY PERMITTED,
BUT OFTEN REWARDED
XXX
MEN WRITE AND THINK IN METAPHORS WHEN THEY FEEL THAT THEY’RE ON THE RIGHT TRACK, BUT DON’T KNOW FOR CERTAIN THE ULTIMATE DESTINATION.
WHEN YOU DO KNOW — YOU’RE THEN FREE TO WRITE AND THINK ABOUT NOTHING.
XXX
CONSIDER THE FACT THAT ONE ABSOLUTE REQUIREMENT FOR LIFE AS WE NOW KNOW IT IS — “LANGUAGE”,…………..THEN PONDER THIS: NO ONE HAS ANY CONTROL OVER LANGUAGE,
WHILE COMMUNICATIONS AT OUR CELLULAR LEVEL IS ALWAYS PRECISE,
SPOKEN COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN MEN IS HARDLY EVER SO AND YET,
THIS SLACKNESS IS NECESSARY FOR DEBATE TO ARISE,
AND DEBATE IS NECESSARY FOR CHANGE TO OCCUR,
AND CHANGE MUST OCCUR FOR MAN TO BE MAN AND LIVE A MANLY EXISTENCE.
VAGUENESS AND DISSENT IS. THOUGHT WORKING AT ITS BEST EXCEPT
AS APPLIES TO SUCH AS WE:.,
…THERE IS NO SUCCESS IN THIS ENDEAVOR ‘TIL ONE ARRIVES AT THE CELLULAR LAND OF: NOTHING BUT FACTS, AND PRECISE UNDERSTANDING.
XXX
THE CONDITION PEOPLE LIKE US DISLIKE AND CALL, “BEING ASLEEP”
IS THE RESULT OF US DEPENDING ON THE DIFFUSED ENERGY THE RETICULAR FORMATION ALLOWS TO REACH THE CORTEX UNDER ROUTINE CIRCUMSTANCES FOR THE TOTAL STATEMENT OF WHAT OUR CONSCIOUSNESS IS.
WE SIMPLY DO NOT FIND THIS COMMON STATE OF CORTICAL ACTIVITY SUFFICIENTLY ACTIVE OR INTERESTING.
ADDITIONAL STIMULI — THERE’S THE SECRET!
99106-6
FROM THE WORD, “METAPHYSICAL”, ALL CONFUSION FLOWS,
FOR THERE IS NO META-PHYSICAL WITHOUT A PURELY PHYSICAL BASE.
WHY SETTLE FOR A PALE IMITATION?! — GO FOR THE REAL THING.
XXX
IT IS PRESUMED THAT “WE” CAN SELECTIVELY BLOCK CERTAIN MESSAGES TO THE BRAIN —
BUT I PUT IT TO YOU:
WHAT “WE” IS THERE APART FROM THE BRAIN ITSELF?!
…BUT HERE’S AN EVEN BETTER ONE FOR YOU:
HOW DOES THE BRAIN MANAGE. TO GET “US” TO SAY SUCH. THINGS AS:
“WE” CAN BLOCK CERTAIN MESSAGES TO THE BRAIN OR EVEN BETTER STILL:
HOW DID IT GET ME TO ASK ABOUT HOW IT CAN GET US. TO SAY THAT. …(YOU DO SEE WHERE ALL OF THIS TAKES YOU — NO?!)
XXX
ONCE YOU HAVE SOME SORT OF PERSONAL, SUSTAINABLE AWARENESS THAT .ALL. _OF YOUR
CONSCIOUSNESS AND THINKING IS. NOTHING BUT CELLULAR ACTIVITY IN
THE CORTICAL AREA OF THE BRAIN,
TRYING TO GO “METAPHYSICALLY” BEYOND THAT IS NOT ONLY USELESS,
BUT UNNECESSARILY WEARISOME AS WELL.
DON’T ENGAGE IN THAT WHICH IS WEARISOME.
XXX
SOME THINGS CANNOT BE. TOLD SINCE THEY ARE ONLY. TRUE AND PRESENT WHEN THE NEURAL CELLS THAT KNOW THEM ARE NOT SPEAKING.
THE “TRUTH” SOUGHT FOR BY SUCH AS WE EXISTS ONLY WHEN IT IS NOT BEING NOTED.
THIS BIOLOGICAL REALITY TRIPS MOST WOULD-BE-WAKER-UPPERS,
AND LEAVES THEM FOREVER SCRAMBLING IN THE DUST OF NEAR BLENDING CONFUSION: FEELING ALWAYS — “JUST-ON-THE-VERGE-OF”
FULL DISCOVERY AND UNDERSTANDING.
ONLY THE SILENT FACTS REVEAL FULL DISCOVERY AND UNDERSTANDING;
YOUR CORTICAL CELLS COMMUNICATE IT — BUT THEY DON’T TALK ABOUT IT.
99106-7
IF A CELL CAME TO ME AND SAID THAT IT WANTED TO “AWAKEN” I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT IT SHOULD PICTURE THE ACTIVITY WITHIN IT THAT PROMPTED THIS, NOT AS THEIR “DESIRE” BUT RATHER AS THE ACTIONS OF ITS MOLECULES,
AND IF A MOLECULE TOLD ME THAT IT LONGED FOR ENLIGHTENMENT, I WOULD TELL IT TO SEE THE FACT THAT IT IS SO MOVED,
NOT BY ITS OWN “PERSONAL WISHES” BUT BY THE ACTIVITY OF THE ATOMS
WHICH MAKE IT UP.
WE ARE ALL DRIVEN, DIRECTED AND CONTROLLED BY SMALLER SIZED PHYSICAL FORCES WITHIN US WHICH USE OUR TONGUES AND THOUGHTS TO SPEAK FOR THEM.
WHAT ARE WE ALL BUT HELPLESS SPOKESMEN FOR OUR CONSTITUENT PARTS?!
ATOMS RUNS ELEMENTS: ELEMENTS RUN MOLECULES: MOLECULES RUN CELLS; CELLS RUN MAN, AND MAN RUNS HIS MOUTH AND “DAY-DREAM-MACHINE”
CONSIDER THIS, BASED ON THE ABOVE:
IF THERE IS SOMETHING LARGER THAN WE ARE THEN WE ARE RUNNING IT: THUS “WE” WOULD BE MORE “POWERFUL” THAN THE LARGER ENTITY,
SAME AS OUR CELLS ARE MORE POWERFUL THAN “WE” ARE.
NOTE THIS: WHEN THE REAL STORY OF AWAKENING IS WRIT,. IT WILL NOT BE WRIT BY ONE AWAKE.
ALL EXPLANATIONS OF AWAKENING ARE METAPHORS, AND ALL METAPHORS
ARE BUT BY-PRODUCTS OF CELLULAR CORTICAL ACTIVITY, “ON-A-SPREE” -“RIGHT IN THE THICK OF IT”, (WHICH IS TO SAY):
“RIGHT EN THE MIDST OF ITSELF”
EXCEPT FOR LIFE ITSELF — EVERYTHING IS A “BY-PRODUCT”
MAKE A LIST OF COLD HARD FACTS:
MAKE A LIST OF METAPHORICAL TRUTHS: TEAR UP THE SECOND LIST.
FACT: ORDINARY PEOPLE, SETTLED IN WITH THEIR ORDINARY CORTICAL ACTIVITY, ARE ACTUALLY MORE AWAKE TO “WHAT-THEY-ARE” THAN ARE ROUTINE MYSTICS.
X X X
99106- 8
SOME ONE NOTES: “I BEGAN BY SEARCHING FOR SOMEONE WHO,’KNEW ALL THE ANSWERS’, BUT THANKFULLY I ENDED UP FINDING A MAN WHO’D ACHIEVED THE STATE OF, ‘NOT KNOWING ANYTHING’,”
ORDINARY PEOPLE WANT TO BE, “LARGER THAN LIFE”, BUT A-MAN-WHO-KNOWS
IS SMALLER THAN LIFE
….AND KNOWS THAT — SO’S EVERYTHING,
XXX
ALL MYSTICISM IS METAPHOR,
AND METAPHORS: “SAY ONE THING WHILE MEANING ANOTHER”,
THUS ALL MYSTICISM IS ALWAYS ONE STEP REMOVED FROM THE FACTS,
ADVANCED VERSION:
ALL MYSTICISM IS METAPHORICAL:
ALL MYSTICISM IS THINKING:
ALL THINKING IS METAPHORICAL —
— ONLY THE MOVING OF ELECTRONS IS REAL,
XXX
IN MATTER OF PHYSICAL FACT: THOSE WHO SEEK “ENLIGHTENMENT”
ARE PEOPLE WHOSE CORTICAL CELLULAR ACTIVITY SEEKS A HIGHER LEVEL
OF STIMULATION AND THUS AN INTENSIFIED STATE OF ALERTNESS WITHOUT NECESSARILY, THE PRESENCE OF ANY EXTERNAL THREAT,
THE REAL FOOD FOR GREAT ALERTNESS AND ENLIGHTENMENT IS A GREATER INTAKE — OR — “SELF-PRODUCTION-OF” MORE EXCITING NEURAL INPUT:
LESS INTROSPECTION:
LESS LISTENING TO ONE’S OWN CELLS CHATTER:
LESS STARING, AND ALWAYS A LESS SEEKING OUT OF”VIGILANCE DIMINISHING” SITUATIONS, (SUCH AS: GIVING HEED TO OTHER PEOPLE’S CELLULAR CHATTER, AS VIA MOVES, TV, BOOKS, CONVERSATION.)
KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE CELLULAR ACTIVITY IN YOUR CORTEX THAT PRODUCES ALL OF YOUR THINKING AND CONSCIOUSNESS:
KEEP YOUR EYE ON IT — DON’T BE DRUG ALONG BY IT,
THE CELLULAR ACTIVITY IN MAN’S CEREBRAL CORTEX IS THE ONLY KNOWN FUNCTION THAT CAN VERBALLY MONITOR ITSELF, RESULTING IN WHAT IT HAS CAUSED US TO LABEL AS: “CONSCIOUSNESS” QUESTION: JUST WHO IS IT THAT IS “CONSCIOUS” ?!
99106-9
REMINDER: PEOPLE OF OUR SORT WATCH A RADIO — WE DO NOT LISTEN TO IT,
XXX
PONDER THIS: EXCEPT REGARDING THE CORTEX,
ALL CELLULAR ATTENTION IS FIXED AND UNCHANGING,
BUT IN THE ACTIVITY WE CALL “CONSCIOUSNESS”,
THE ATTENTION OF THE CELLS RESPONSIBLE THEREFOR
CONTINUALLY WANDER, AND CONSIDER ALTERNATE POSSIBILITIES.
DIRECT PHYSICAL MATTERS REQUIRE STRICT, FOCUSED ATTENTION, WHILE MAN’S MENTAL ONES THRIVE ONLY UNDER CONDITIONS OTHERWISE.
…YOU COULD EVEN SAY THAT ONE OF THE PRIME USES OF LANGUAGE AND CONSCIOUSNESS IS THAT THEY ALLOW US TO STRAY FROM THE IMMEDIATE
MATTER AT HAND, (AND NOT TO MENTION HOW DOWN-RIGHT ENTERTAINING IT CAN BE.)
FACT: IT’S ALWAYS APPROPRIATE TO LEAVE ROOM FOR:
DOUBT, QUESTION, AND DEBATE EVEN WITHIN ONE’S OWN
CORTICAL CELLULAR ACTIVITY,
THE DESIRE TO HOLD TO PAST IDEAS IS A SURE SIGN OF YOUR PRESENT LACK OF UNDERSTANDING.
A REALLY DESIRABLE TRAIT IS THE ABILITY TO TOTALLY LET GO-OF, AND, SUBSTANTIALLY-FORGET-ABOUT
CURRENT IDEAS AND CIRCUMSTANCES,
THOSE WHO WILL SUCCEED AT THIS MUST BECOME LIVING EXAMPLES OF THE POSITIVE BENEFITS OF CONSTANTLY, “CHANGING HORSES IN MID-STREAM”.
THERE IS THIS: THE EVER PRESENT NEED TO :BE — “UPWARDLY MOBILE”.
XXX
WITH CELLULAR CONSCIOUSNESS COMES A CONSTANT DISSATISFACTION, CAUSED BY A UNIQUE CELLULAR ACTIVITY THAT PRODUCES AN “AWARENESS” THAT UNLIKE ANY OTHER AREAS OF ITS ACTIVITIES,
IS AWARE OF ITS ACTIVITY. AND AWARENESS.
THIS RESULTING DISSATISFACTION NEEDS TO :BE FED A MORE INTENSE FORM OF STIMULATION,
EITHER SO FEED IT, OR WEEP.
XXX
99106-10
CHEW A WHILE ON THIS:
MENTAL PERCEPTION AND MOTOR COORDINATION ARE CONTROLLED FROM THE SAME NEURAL AREA.
LOW-PERCEPTION-INTENSITY — CLUMSINESS-IN-MOVEMENT.
…IT’S ALL EXPLAINED RIGHT HERE IN THE FACTS,
XXX
WHAT DO METAPHORS REPRESENT? — A FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND THE FACTS,
MEN SAY THEY RESORT TO METAPHORS WHEN TRYING TO DESCRIBE THINGS, “INDESCRIBABLE”:
NO SUCH THINGS EXIST…NOT EVEN IN FICTION,
AND EVEN FICTION IS A “FACT”.
STICK TO THE FACTS:
FACTS ARE FACTS:
STICK WITH THE FACTS:
FACTS ARE FACTS, AND FICTION IS FICTION NO MATTER IF IT IS CALLED,
“METAPHOR”
STICK WITH FULL STRENGTH FACTS:
METAPHORS ARE NOTHING BUT “FACTS LITE”:
FACTS FOR THE WEAK: FACTS FOR THE TIMID: FACTS FOR THE UNDER-AGE,
STICK WITH THE FACTS,
FOR FACTS THEMSELVES ARE JUST BARELY USING IN THIS ENDEAVOR
(SO YOU CAN JUST IMAGINE OF HOW LITTLE VALUE IS ANYTHING LESS!)
THOSE”STRUGGLING-TO” AWAKEN SEE A MOUNTAIN AS A “CHALLENGE”,
AND SENSE THE NEED TO TRY AND FOREVER, CLIMB IT, HIGHER AND HIGHER:
THEY ARE ONE-EYED AND DISORIENTED:
WHILE A MAN, ALERT AND USING BOTH EYES
SEES A MOUNTAIN AS NOTHING OTHER THAN A MOUNTAIN:
YOU CAN CLIMB IT:
LOOK AT IT:
NOT CLIMB IT:
NOT LOOK AT IT, (AND SO ON.)
YES, YOU MUST BECOME “UPWARDLY MOBILE” BUT THIS HAS TO DO WITH ONLY CELLULAR STIMULATION.
99106-11
TEP: IF YOU DON’T TALK ABOUT HOW YOU LIVE
YOU WON’T HAVE TO LISTEN TO OTHER PEOPLE’S RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING,
HOW-YOU-SHOULD-LIVE,
ADVANCED TIP: DON’T EVEN TALK ABOUT THIS IN FRONT OF YOUR OWN CELLS,
AFTER HEARING SOME ONE USE THE TERM: “DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF.”, ONE MAN THOUGHT: “THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT MY NEURONS,”
ONCE EVERYONE KNEW THE “FACTS”: MOST FORGET THEM:
A FEW DIDN’T,
THEY’RE KNOW AS, “CELLS”,
SO —
IF YOU DON’T FORGET YOUR CELLS
THEN YOU WELL THEN BE ABLE TO RECALL “THE FACTS”,
FROM ONE MAN’S PRIVATE DIARY:
ENTRY OF AUGUST 25TH;
“HOW I REALIZE THAT I AM BACK ASLEEP, AND — FAR FROM THE FACTS:
MY THINKING IS AGAIN POETIC AND METAPHORIC,
RATHER THAN HARD NOSED AND SCIENTIFIC,
I KNOW THIS TO BE AN INFALLIBLE WARNING.,
…THOUGH ANNOYING TO SOME OF MY CORTICAL CELLULAR ACTIVITY.” (END OF ENTRY.)
AUGUST 26TH: “ON DAYS WHEN I AM IN A FAIRLY DECENT MOOD ABOUT FENDING
MYSELF ASLEEP, (THAT IS, EN A NORMAL CONDITION), I WILL SAY TO MYSELF:
‘IT IS JUST THE CELLULAR ACTIVITY IN MY CORTEX”.
BUT ON DAYS WHEN I AM NOT FEELING QUITE SO MAGNANIMOUS TOWARDS MY SELF,
I WILL SAY: ‘IT IS THE ATOMIC ACTIVITY IN MY BRAIN CELLS AT WORK,’,
AND MAKE ME HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE SITUATION ON THAT BASIS,”
(END OF HIS ENTRY, AND FROM THERE I PICK IT UP):
YOU CAN BE EITHER: MYSTICAL OR SCIENTIFIC: METAPHORICAL OR FACTUAL:
LAZY OR LASER-SHARP: FANCIFUL OR CLEAR-EYED, EN OTHER WORDS:
YOU CAN EITHER: PLAY-WITH: THINK-ABOUT, AND APPARENTLY STRUGGLE-WITH,
“WAKING UP”, OR ELSE DROP AND RISE TO THE ATOMIC LEVEL WHERE NOTHING EVER
SLEEPS, OR HAS DAY DREAMS ABOUT SUCH A CONDITION, BY BY, CORTICAL RUN AROUND.
